Got my Byzantium Librem 5 today. I followed the Quick Start Guide, which said to first, while it was powered off, let it charge. I did that.
After that I pressed the start button as the guide says to do in order to start it and get to the lock screen. However, it went to a disk encryption screen, and asked me to enter the passphrase. This was not described in the guide, I wasn’t sure what to enter, nor what it was trying to do. Being at a loss, I entered “123456”, since that was the default lock screen password in the guide. It accepted that, went past that screen, and then the lock screen appeared, and I had to use the default password of “123456”, as the guide said. Then, under settings>user, I changed the password to one I wanted.
But now, whenever I start the phone, it always goes first to that encryption screen, and I have to enter the passphrase of “123456”. I thought changing my password would apply to the passphrase for encryption, but it seems it does not.
How do I change the encryption pass phrase at this point?
Why am I always presented with the encryption screen when I start the phone?
Rebuild? From what I know of LUKS you can not change the password on encryption. You would have to blow away the volume and create a new, which would be a reinstall. I was planning to do this for my Librem 5 I just received yesterday.
If anybody has a solution to this w/o rebuild, I’d love to know more. Thanks!
Thanks to all for the help, the suggestions above enabled me to change the password.
I perhaps didn’t make it very clear, my fault: My biggest issue is that, a noob like me, found it very disconcerting when the guide said the first thing I’d see is the lock screen, when in reality the first screen I saw was a screen asking for my disk encryption passphrase. I just stared at it for several seconds, glancing back and forth between it and the startup guide, thinking, “NOW what did I do wrong!!???”
I received my Librem5 today and have already managed to lock myself out of it.
I changed the encryption password not thinking about my scandinavian keyboard layout which seems unavailable to me when asked for the decryption paraphrase after rebooting.
Is there any way to change the layout, and if so, how?
Or do I have to reflash the whole phone (already;) ?
